EN Jewelry Trunk Show at 180 The Store - 180 The Store

180 The Store will be hosting a trunk show for New York-based jewelry brand En Jewelry!Founded by friends Malu Byrne and Rick Van Steain Low, the collection includes rainbow-hued gold jewelry that encompasses a playful yet minimalist essence.

The two designers crossed paths nearly 10 years ago, at a coffee shop, bonding over Baroque art and marble statues. When Byrne began creating her own designs of sculptural jewels made of glass, Rick Van stepped in to cast the jewels into precious metals-- and the brand was created. When deciding on a name, the pair landed on En -- the Japanese word for together. We will be showcasing their debut collection and never seen before holiday pieces during the trunk show. Both Malu and Rick will be in attendance and available for any questions about the brand or collections! Our assortment will include a range of rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings in precious stones at affordable prices.
